  • Mary Grams, 84, from Alberta, Canada, thought her ring was gone forever when she lost it 13 years ago.
  • It turned up this week on her family farm, fit snugly around a recently-uprooted carrot.
  • "It still fits," Grams told CBC News.

If you've ever been engaged or married, you're probably familiar with that terrifying moment when your ring is misplaced temporarily. It happens. When Mary Grams, now 84, lost her engagement ring while pulling weeds at her family farm in Alberta, Canada, in 2004, she thought it was gone forever.

But this week, 13 years later, she found her ring miraculously "growing" around a carrot in her garden.


After she initially lost the ring, she told CBC News that she quickly replaced it with a much smaller ring so that her husband of 51 years would not be upset.

Grams' daughter-in-law was the one who plucked the lucky carrot. "I asked my husband if he recognized the ring,"Colleen Daley said. "And he said yeah. His mother had lost her engagement ring years ago in the garden and never found it again. And it turned up on this carrot."

Sadly, Grams' husband Norman died five years ago, shortly after their 60th wedding anniversary. But she's still excited to find her engagement ring again: "I'm going to wear it because it still fits," she told CBC.
